No matter the age of your home, chances are it could benefit from an energy audit. If you hired a contractor to perform this service, you could pay up to $500. The good news is one of the many benefits of being a member of Blue Grass Energy is you can receive one for free.
During an audit, one of our energy advisors, which are certified HERS raters, will come to your home and inspect common problem areas and tell you how you can make a few changes that will make your home more comfortable and your energy bills lower.
“What members may not realize is the comfort of their home is directly related to the energy efficiency of their house,” said Joe Burgess, Energy Advisor for Blue Grass Energy. “We can help identify issues that will improve comfort and decrease energy usage.”
Areas on the audit inspection list include insulation, windows, ductwork, or any other place you think might be troublesome. A typical audit will last 1-2 hours. Some of the technologies used in the auditing process may include infrared scanning and blower door testing.
“It’s not uncommon to find large air leaks in duct work,” said Burgess. “We have a rebate program for members to help fix this problem. It’s called Duct Seal.”
